If there ever was a sweater that reminded me of cooler spring nights, it’s this sweater. I love the fit of this striped sweater and the nautical style with the navy and white. It runs a little large so I’d recommend sizing down. I’m wearing an XS and it’s still loose! That makes it perfect for the office.

You could also wear this with your favorite pair of jean shorts or your favorite leggings. It’s definitely a little longer so it covers everything!

These mules are by one of my favorite shoe brands, Splendid. I love the knot/bow detail for something a little different. These come in 3 colors so if you’re in need of a different one, check out the other two.

This grey wrap top is a great lightweight top for spring. The fabric is soft but also double lined so that the top isn’t see through. You could wear this with so many different bottoms. I am layering it over this cami which is only $12. I wear these all the time underneath all of my tops. They help smooth everything out and also help if a shirt is a little too short or just to make you more comfortable at the office!

I also just ordered another pair of these high waist skinny jeans. I’ve been getting so much wear out of them I thought I might as well. They’ve held up incredibly well and the length just seems to work perfectly with all footwear every single season. And I love a good high waist!

If there ever was a dress that was made for me, it would be this striped A-Line dress! The quality is beyond all expectations for the price. I love the vertical stripes because they’re slimming and the shape is just amazing. I put this on and was so impressed. I can’t say enough about this dress!

I’m new to this brand but I was browsing the other dresses by them and found so many cute ones!

Also wearing this monogram initial necklace I’ve been wearing a lot lately! My sister got it for me for Christmas and I love it! Matt has told me that he would rather me be wearing a B though (for my married last name).
